'If you never try, You will never know' is the debut novel of author 'Sahil Mehta' and for a debut novel, the plot is quite good.

3 words to describe this book:-
Heartwarming, Thrilling, Exciting.

The story focuses on one ultimate theme that is 'Follow Your Passion' no matter what.

The story revolves around 'Robin' who always dreamt of becoming a musician but his father never supported him and wanted him to join his business. His elder brother Suraj and his mother were the only ones who supported his ambitions but unfortunately they were dead. His mother died a long time ago but his brother's recent death traumatizes him to the extent that forces him to leave his home.

In order to fulfill his dreams and cope with his brother's death he moves out to Vihan city where he meets a guy named Jordan to whom he feels an instant connection. Jordan in many ways is similar to his brother Suraj and fills the emptiness in Robin's life.

Enters Aisha like a breath of fresh air in Robin's gloomy life and they fall in love. She is everything that Robin desires and finally Robin is content with his life but everything is not what it seems like.

When Robin introduces Aisha to Jordan, Aisha is terrified as she sees no one.

Who is Jordan? Will Aisha and Robin have a happy ending? Will Robin be able to persue his dreams?

All in all this book is about Robin and his struggles, his dreams and aspirations. 

No doubt, the plot was a good one but the story was far more stretched than it was needed with the addition of certain useless elements which made is quite boring at one point.

The ending was not as I expected it to be but I came to terms with it. The writing style was good and simple but some grammatical errors interfered with the reading pace.

This book is perfect for those who are looking for a light and exciting read.

Book Review: Split by J.B. Salsbury

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama, inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from cystic fibrosis.

As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure.

This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start!
1.Live Big because life don't give us enough chances.


2. Take risks, you never know which moment is your last. 


3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you.


4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living.


5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.


Until next time...Bye!

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families. 

Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca. 
Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power, but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile.

In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster within; a monster who ca…

**Thanks to Hay House for the Review copy** First things first, Deepak Chopra is one of the most efficient non-fiction writers. I've heard great things about his books but as I am not so keen on non-fiction so I haven't read any of them. But guess what! One day I came across a title called Soulmate, written by Deepak Chopra and that too a fiction!! So I knew I had to read this and I just picked up this book.
The thing that attracted me to this book was its cover an…
